The Chinese New Version Bible (CNV) is a completely new translation of the Bible in traditional (聖經新譯本) Chinese. It was completed by a team of 50 Chinese biblical scholars from the 1970’s until 2001. These Chinese biblical scholars are experts in the original languages and had their translation done directly from the best available Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts into modern Chinese.

The CNV is a faithful translation of the original biblical texts, using contemporary easy-to-read Chinese for an essentially evangelical faith with a view of exalting Christ at the very process of translation. First released in 1992, then upgraded in 2002, the CNV Bible has now become one of the most popular and welcomed versions of the Bible among worldwide Chinese churches and Christians.
